Pebble Mosaic Workshop

£265.00

For many years, I have run one day pebble mosaic workshops from my working studio in central Ilkley.

This workshop is unique in that it has been designed to fit comfortably into one day, covering the history and practicalities of mosaic, giving advice, as well as creating your own mosaic through to casting it, which can then be collected once it has cured.

The workshop usually runs on Saturdays from 10 until 6pm, so if you are staying for a few days, the cured mosaic can be picked up on Monday before you travel home, or it can be picked up at a later date.

People find the workshops not only informative, but relaxing, therapeutic, and good for their wellbeing.

The workshops give me the opportunity to share the knowledge I have built up over many years on commission work and give people practical advice to help them with their specific projects, whether that is in pebble or other types of mosaic.

Numbers are kept to a maximum of 4 people to make sure that everyone gets the best from the day, and my wife Caroline who is a designer and mosaicist provides support throughout the day.
